*OFFICIAL NYE 2017 DJ*
Based in Washington, D.C.’s burgeoning underground dance music community, zacheser is a hard DJ and producer to nail down. Having attracted attention for his eccentricities both on and off the decks, he continues to push personal boundaries as a curator, musician, and label boss.
Known for his border crossing DJ sets that meld house, techno, and disco, zacheser feels just as at home sharing bills alongside the likes of Disclosure, Claude Vonstroke, Justin Martin, and Moon Boots as he is artists like Crystal Castles or Giraffage after honing an aesthetic based around positivity, high energy, and goofing around.
In 2016, he started cutting his teeth as a producer, leading to multiple remixes on Hype Machine and coverage from outlets such as Earmilk, Acid Stag, Your EDM, and Beautiful Buzzz. 2017 was a breakout year for zacheser after releases on Feed Me Disco, HotBoi Records, and joining OKNF – a bass house collective based out of Brooklyn, NY. 2017 also saw the launch of Chub Rub: a label / collective he founded to showcase the chunkier house, disco, and tech leaning sounds being made by tastemakers and producers in D.C.
Additionally, zacheser has been an active participant and vocal advocate of the body positive movement since his teenage years and uses his visibility as a DJ to promote body positivity for young men and women. Most recently, he has combined his love for dance music with body positivity through the hashtag ‘#FatBeats’ on social media: an attempt to bridge the gap and promote body diversity in the dance music community. #FatBeats, as well as zacheser’s other advocacy work, has been featured by MTV, BBC News, and other media outlets.
